When life is full of surprises. These need not be expensive, nor big or thrilling. Surprises come in many forms. A smile, an unexpected positive feedback, a visit or a call from a dear old friend, a heart-felt chat, a confiding perhaps, a genuine appreciation, a result that wasn’t thought of and many more. But don’t expect surprises all the time. Like ups and downs of a long road, some surprises aren’t all that pleasant. The key is – you guessed this – not to get bogged down with the downers and elated with the high ones. That’s what you hopefully master before you realize it is too late or before your time is over.
